8:17 am
about folks headed south bond maryland, delays i-95, beltsville, got that in from fox 5 wazer also columbia pike, southbound delays reported there and bw parkway travelling south we did traffic for you as well. will over to you. the proution and defense facing off in opening statements month, in the trial of retired penn state football coach jerry sandusky. the 68-year-old is battling against 52 criminal counts denying charges he sexually abused tenuous, over 15 years one alleged victim took to the stand saying he wrote him quote creepy love lettertried to initiate sex. chris is with us a former public defender now a criminal defense attorney good to have you with us. >> thanks for having me. >> in criminal accusation cases involving sex, accusers credibility is paramount. defense is going after at least one of the accusers, trying to
8:18 am
impugn his credibility because he hires a civil attorney perhaps suggesting money is a motive. it is rather man, there would be a civil case following someone especially some body who is a public figure, with this kind of allegation. let's face it penn state has a deep pocket, whether or not the university at some point could be found at fault is an issue. naturally, that is a motive. >> you don't think it is unusual to see alleged victims in cases like this, pony up with civil attorneys. >> not guilty at all. i have had -- not at all. i have had cases and many others have, where a civil case follow as criminal case. if there is a conviction, it is easy to get a civil judgment. in this case, it is not unusual. it doesn't mean it is not true but never the less a motive. natural they would bring it up. that doesn't surprise me at all. >> defense is laying out a case of david and goliath, all the victims represent goliath and little david is sandusky.
8:19 am
is this a hail mary pass going after the alleged victims suggesting they are in it for money. >> first of all because of the number of accusers and because of the public nature of it and everything else, suberously it is an -- obviously it is an under dog battle for defense. one thing interesting about what defense appears to be doing, is embracing, some of the oddnesses of sandusky we all see they will be able to prove like they have been saying the creepy letters, the odd behaviours, and it hasn't been talked about a lot but there is a motion before the court to try to bring forward, sandusky has been diagnosed with histrionic personality disorder it basically is characterized by flamboyant, attention seeking behaviour that could explain some of his quirkness. >> if these charges are true, is it your experience predators often see what they are doing
8:20 am
as not wrong? >> that could -- certain types of predators, yes. some body who might simply not believe that what he was doing was wrong and i have no idea think thing about mr. sandusky personally, however, it may be he was engaging in extremely odd behaviours, and yet, might not be guilty of some of this specific allegations they need to make serious felony charges. for example we can already tell from evidence, that he was inappropriately clothed with some of these kiddid so i thinks no parent would want their child any where near. no question about that. yet again, i think defense will say, just because he is weird, just because he was acting in these ways, that is something different. >> inappropriate in the eyes to have law. let me ask you this in opening statements defense suggested sandusky may take the stand that will occur? ear from him. >> i think because defense essentially said it it is very
8:21 am
likely to occur in this kind of case w number of allegations, with everything else, it may be the case, simply -- there is no other way >> again could be a hail mary look take the stand tell them you are innocent. >> mow the jury has been told that they are going to wait for it. that will be a big event. >> how do you explain that. >> when everyone else testifies, it means perhaps they will listen to the defense attorneys plea to wait, wait until you hear. >> final 15 seconds here, the jury not sequestered many have ties to penn state are you surprised by that? >> it is very very rare to sequester a jury in any case, extremely rare so i am not surprised by that and also based on some of the jury selection here, this is such a small community, i mean there are jurors on this case, that are familiar with the parents of some of the accusers i mean it is just a small community and appears almost impossible to stop. >> chris, good insight today,
8:22 am
the case continues, trial continues today thanks for joining us. allison. thank you, 71 degrees on tuesday morning. a little later nhl crowns a new stanley cup champion. >> working out with a special twist inside the regions only glow in the dark gym. first, what to expect when water gate gets a modern make over. we will be right back

8:32 am
morning if you were up and just bring an umbrella. showers in the forecast maybe a thunderstorm too. had to break the news to spencer earlier on the telephone she might not be going to a pool party. postponed not cancelled. a little rain she is already wet in the pool >> i know but lightning and all that. >> potential for thunderstorms might not be your pick of the week. radar, showing shower activity, rain has been redeveloping out west. south and west of the city, check out winchester and front royal, pretty good rains. not raining every minute but midday hours we will have a good soaking rain across much of the region. could be thunderstorms as well. we mention that as the frontal system moves in from the west. the big picture, a cold front and all the moisture, that has
8:33 am
been training up from florida, moving in that combination will give us a wet one. good news the cold front will be east of us, and should see gradually cheering skies. future cast in motion, midday, showers, potential for thunderstorm activity looks like it wants to develop it, south of the city, and then we will clear the whole thing out of here overnight tonight and most of the week should be nice and dry, less humidity around here. gradually more comfortable as we get into tomorrow morning. tomorrow morning looking at sunshine already breaking out across the area. by tomorrow afternoon lots of sunshine your five day forecast. 80 this afternoon showers and storms in the forecast, your five day temperatures 80, by saturday, right now, weekend looks great. all right allison toss it back to you at the desk. the old saying all things in moderation may be true especially when it comes to exercise. if you work a lot of long hours
8:34 am
you could put yourself at more risk for heart attack, and diabetes, dr. mike is with us, with details, good morning to you. >> hello allison how are you? >> doing well thank you. i am interested in starting things off with these findings, with exercise, i guess some people really over do it what is the research? >> well, in this new study allison, what they found, was that people are running marathons, people doing extreme exercising, for a lot of the time, actually can damage their hearts. what they did was enlarged the heart. i have a heart here with me, and basically, what they found was that the chambers in the heart, ventricles in the top of the heart got bigger there was scarring if you did extreme exercises with running marathons, too much this could lead to problems rhythm problems and heart attacks down
8:35 am
the road. so as my grandfather used to say everything in moderation. i am all about exercise but i am not a big fan of running marathons all the time. it is just not good it causes joint problems and can damage your heart >> also what does it do to muscles dr. mike overtime? can it deplete your muscles? >> well, you can have significant problems. i had a patient who did a triathalon, and he was in his early 60s which is wonderful but he got so dehydrated, he developed a condition known as rabdomiyolosia muscles are damaged and he had to be put in the hospital. if you are out there, unless you are training for olympics or something. you can run, but don't over do it. last question on that is there anything you can do to restore your body, if you stop
8:36 am
working out as much, and sort of you know, bring it back a little bit will that help to reverse damage you have done. ed the dis show allison -- studies show allison this is something for people chronically doing extreme exercising marathons, more than once or twice a year. this is for people addicted to it. everybody out there, do a combination of arrow buck and anaerobic exercise. if you work more than 10 hours a day, it increases your risk of getting some body fat what we call metabolic syndrome can increase your risk of diabetes, stroke and heart attack. >> why does that happen dr. mike? >> we are not sure as to why 10 hours but it seems that, if you work 10 hours a day, you are going to disrupt your circadian rhythm and you know, everything in life has an ebb and flow you
8:37 am
wake up and your body responds, so, what happens is if you work too many hours, it really disrupts that, and can lead to people having more stress, eating more, and sleeping less. and all of those things can lead to weight gain and if you develop that metabolic syndrome, that is the apple not the pear, you increase your risk of developing all of these problems, and it is just not worth it. 30 seconds how do we work better then under stress do that in 8 hours say? >> well y need to be efficient, lots of people -- well, you need to be efficient lots of people are not efficient in this way they work and handle stress the wrong way. it can be a really good motivational force you just have to use it in a way like you would a glass of wine you don't want to drink a bottle of wine but a glass might be beneficial. so you've got to set some limits, and you need to be able to get your exercise in, within moderation, get your rest
8:38 am
within moderation, and most importantly, be with your loved ones because that is correct kind of feedback and support is going to keep you -- buzz that kind of feedback and support is going to keep you healthy. thank you so much. >> take care allison. will over to you. a glass of wine not a bottle. that is the issue. >> get it? >> time now 8:38 a.m. tuesday morning coming up next celebrating the full which you are and food of the -- culture and food of the coo rain january. we will cook up good food for caribbean heritage month. first melanie alnwick is here with a special sneak peek. hi mel. >> check this out what is going on here. this is a fitness facility here in rockville maryland, fitness for health where these kids are exercising not only their bodies but minds it is a unique concept not only for all sorts of kids but especially to help children with special needs. we will tell you all about that
